The 560, I wouldn't really buy anything older than gtx4xx. Exactly what is your budget?

You can possibly swing a gtx560ti for $200 if you are lucky to get an open boxed or a refurbished version from newegg. They are great cards and when overclocked they match stock clocked gtx480/570 with ease. If you want to be thrifty then a gtx460 256bit will hold up for non 1080p gaming for a few years. I suggest that you avoid the gtx480 for plenty of reasons mainly due to heat and power consumption. The gtx285 is mainly for those who focus on certain cuda and physx apps to take advantage of certain advantages of older cards.

I would also look at some 6870 benchmarks too and base your decision on that, although in the US the 6870 will leave you with ~$20 left over.

GTX 560 is pretty sweet, but the 560ti would be a good upgrade and will keep you under $200 if you shop around a bit.

I grabbed a AMD 7850 a couple days ago for $210 after $30 MIR and it seems to be quite a bit faster than either of those. The deal is back up on Newegg today if you want to check it out.

I only play at 1920 x 1080, so the 7850 was as high as I was willing to go.

*sorry, the India post wasn't up when I posted.

Switching to ATI would probably be based on your power supply. The modern AMD cards run on much less power while maintaining comparable performance.

The 560 has a TDP of 160W, while a 7850 has a TDP of 130W. A 9800GT looks to be either 105 or 125W.

A nice card with similar TDP to your 9800GT would be a AMD 6850 and it might meet your price requirements and give a great upgrade.

It depends if your mobo supports it. If not, don't bother. There are advantages and disadvantages to both sides, so it honestly doesn't matter if you switch or not.

ur PSU has only 1 6-pin PCIe connector buddy. a 560 requires 2 connectors

edit : what res do u game at? HD 7770 Ghz edition is not a bad card. it gives performace similar to a 6850. But since ur psu is not top notch quality i wouldnt recomment any other card.

A pc with 7770 will require only 250watts. See the above link. So it will run on your 460watt PSU. even a HD 6850 will run. If u want to run 560 then get corsair cx500v2 psu for around 3.5k

that card will run hot and consume lot of power.. and it is 3 generations older.. why do u want to buy it ? It will also not support DX11. a card which is so old and producing so much noise and consuming so much power is not worth. get a 7770 ghz edition..
